Hi, I'm doing the Rome Marathon on 23 March 2003. I'd love to complete in under 3.45. The maximum weekly mileage I've been doing is about 50 miles - had an easy week last week of 25 miles plus intervals (10 x 300m)and a gym session although this did include a 6 mile race.
I've already done two long runs of over 3 hours and intend to do the Milford 21 XC on Sunday (sore throat permitting!). Any ideas as to how many long runs should ideally be done for a marathon?
